Yesterday I started a new gig. (I'm actually extremely excited but am dangerously close to surpassing this year's quota on exclamation points.) I've been making the donuts for almost 3 days at Johns Hopkins. I interviewed for a new and exciting opportunity here in April and was delighted to find out that I was their pick. I am now the Student Engagement and Information Fluency librarian at the Sheridan Libraries. I will focus my time on innovative programming and assessment of information literacy skills for the undergraduate population. We've got a few programs already underway and so far it's just been, well, mind-boggling! I'm excited that everyone here is excited about my nutty ideas!
That said, it was very sad to leave Towson where I first cut my librarian teeth. I know that the partnerships and friendships I made there will last for many years. In fact, the Towson Marketing Librarian and I will be presenting at ACRL MD's 2013 Unconference later this month. Our presentation is a lightning talk titled; It's not me, it's you: breaking up with bad library habits. (Ensue hilarity and truth.) And, TU Science Librarian, Laksamee Putnam and I have been scheming about a presentation regarding the super awesome web content we stumble across that illustrates info lit principles. (Rubs palms together.) So, no one is getting away from me that easy. Try!
